Dunno, that's why I kept quiet. Personally, I would have guessed
Hassler, but for no good reason (and I might have been tempted to
enclose a pdf of a mass of his that I edited, just for swanking, but the
list would have stripped all that off).
The main reason I chose him, apart from the amazing chromatic shifts
that his stuff has, is that he essentially wrote all this stuff as part
of his atonement for murdering his wife + wife's lover. In fact he wrote
this stuff to be whipped to (by his man servant) whilst praying at the
alter rail in his chapel.
As programmer, having to deal with various arms of Government, I can
identify with this...
